Name: Nicole Valle

Hometown: Boonton, New Jersey

Year: Sophomore

Major: Communication Arts

Minor: Journalism

What’s your favorite spot on campus: The back table in the library. I hang out with my best friends there everyday.

Who is your celebrity crush?: I have to say Dougie Poynter from McFly but I feel strongly about Mark Ruffalo, Michael Clifford, River Phoenix and Charlie Heaton.

If you could spend one day with your crush what would you do?: Okay, I would take Dougie Poynter to the planetarium at the Museum of Natural History and finish the night with Chinese food and a concert.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?: I have lived in 5 countries and have attended 7 schools in my lifetime!  I also have a really strong connection with the number 19 since a lot of the most important events in my life took place on 19s!

On campus, where do you get your caffeine fix? Starbucks or Cafe?:  I go to Starbucks daily.

What is your go to drink at that place?: I get a Vanilla Iced Chai with a shot of espresso.

Best memory at MMC: Playing Cards against Humanity with my best friends back at 55th on Friday nights and laughing until our sides hurt.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Or 10?: In 5 years, I hope to be an accomplished music and entertainment journalist. I also hope to move to have my drawings published through a clothing company. Within 5 to 10 years I also hope to reconnect with someone I have met who moved to Australia and hopefully create a life with him. Ooops...I’m mushy. Career first though!

What advice do you have for freshman: School is important but so is learning more about yourself. Adventure the city and do things that scare you. Remember to have fun and concentrate on classes. But self-improvement is always better through experience.
